Q. What is Give For Good Louisville ?
Hosted by the Community Foundation of Louisville, Give For Good Louisville is our community’s biggest day of local giving! For 24-hours, our community comes together with gifts big and small to give back to the nonprofits which are helping change the world around us. The Community Foundation invites everyone to tap into their potential to be a force for good when this year’s giving day returns on September 12, 2019!
Q. Why should I give through Give For Good Louisville as opposed to giving directly to the agency?
- SPOTLIGHT ON NONPROFITS – Each year, the Community Foundation pulls their resources to spotlight and raise awareness for the local nonprofit sector. By coming together as one community, we are able to leverage our resources to promote the good work of our community’s nonprofits.
- SUPPORT – Give For Good Louisville exists to support, equip, and serve the local nonprofit community by providing trainings, fundraising tools, best practices, and other resources to help them raise money. Our goal is to equip every organization with the tools they need to fulfill their important missions.
- YEAR-ROUND TOOLS – By partnering with the GiveGab platform, the Foundation is providing access to year-round online fundraising pages, which provides nonprofits with an online donation system with peer-to-peer fundraising and robust features. It also gives all nonprofits the opportunity to engage their Give For Good Louisville donors all year long with a platform that provides a great user experience that makes giving fun and easy.
- LEVERAGE – Last year, Give For Good Louisville provided over $340,000 in bonus & prize pool funds for organizations that participated in the biggest day of local giving. This money was spread among the different size participants and enabled agencies to maximize their efforts! For organizations of all sizes, prize money can be a game changer.
- COMMUNITY & FRIENDLY COMPETITION – Giving is contagious and by creating an entire event dedicated to supporting our nonprofits via social sharing, we can come together as a community and encourage our friends and family to give to the causes we love the most. According to our nonprofit survey, in 2018, 76% of respondents reported acquiring new donors through the giving day. With so many nonprofits to discover, there’s something for everyone! In fact, 32% of respondents to our donor survey reported supporting organizations for the first time through Give For Good Louisville.
